Disney's Animal Kingdom News for May 3, 2017: Avatar opens

Map on the App: On My Disney Experience, you will now find the entire map of the land available to you. You can see the location of the rides as well as all the food and drink areas, and the shop. You can also see there are a lot of random trails in around the mountains. It seems very similar to the Tree of Life trails.

New shake: a new alcoholic milkshake has appeared at Trilo-Bites, the kiosk just on the outskirts of Dinoland heading towards Flame Tree BBQ.  The Smoky Bones Chocolate shake adds candied bacon and bourbon to a chocolate ice cream shake. I plan on trying this considering my adoration for Tipsy Ducks in Love over in Epcot.  

Avatarland media preview: I am sure you have all seen the media previews for the new land. Extensive videos can be found of the landscape and the queue of the Flight as well as portions of the Na'vi boat ride. For a short time, the entire boat ride was available but that has since be taken down. You can find videos of the shaman AA that has received some significant praise. And its very impressive for sure, which is good because at least on video the remainder of the ride seems relatively ho hum. Disney describes it as the most technically advanced AA in the world.
